The gender of the person one receives the heart from may in fact prove highly important for their future evolution。 As reported on November the 12th at the American Heart Association’s annual Scientific Sessions meeting, the number of patients whose gender matched their donors’ proved to be less likely to reject the organ or to develop serious health problems after the operation。

Surgeon Eric Weiss of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore studied a database including information about 18,240 heart recipients who have *******ne the procedure between 1998 and 2007。 The information stretched from 3-4 years to more than 10 years, which allowed the researchers to notice some important differences in the patients’ evolution。

About a quarter of the patients died some time after the operation especially in the first year after it, which is considered to be a critical period。 What is striking about the data is the fact that the gender-matched recipients proved to be 15% less likely to die after the operation。 Women who did not match their donors’ gender proved to be most affected as they were 23% more likely to die after the operation。 The numbers seem to speak for themselves。

“This was something that was speculated based on smaller studies from single institutions, says Eric Weiss。 With the new findings, he says, “we basically supported the hypothesis。”

The same phenomenon could be noticed while analyzing cases of immune rejection。 In these situations the patient’s immune system attacks the newly-received organ, which can ultimately lead to death。 Those who had the same gender as the person they received the heart from proved to be less likely to find themselves in this situation。 Women whose donor was a man rejected their hearts in a larger number than other patients。
